Dr. Vazquez was very personable and explained his diagnosis clearly, including potential healing time and follow up treatment. He also patiently answered the numerous questions that my wife and I had.

I'm reading these great reviews & I wish I had a good experience. He came highly recommended to me by 2 people. From these reviews, I guess it's hit or miss on good treatment. You can't get intouch with his office or get a return call. He is short and is out the door before you can ask a question. Always had to remind him of my issue(s). When I questioned why I wasn't getting better, his response was usually how many of these surgeries he does. Well I had to have another surgery (not with him).

Dr. Vasquez treated me for a torn rotor cup. He operated on me and did a fabulous job. I would give him more than 5 stars if possible

I cannot praise Dr Vasquez enough. His diagnoses was right on, and his expertise on performing a reverse shoulder replacement was unbelievable. I can honestly say that the surgical procedure and 6 week recovery period was totally painless. The Physical Therapy is the killer but well worth the pain. I can now sleep at night without any pain radiating from my shoulder, and regaining a range of motion in my shoulder that I have not had for at least 15 years.

Very disappointed in him. Thought his bed side manner was pretentious and pompous. Not to mention rude. Never asked about my back story and why I was there. Couldn’t figure out what was wrong with me so immediately made remarks about me having to lose 20lbs. News flash this is 2017. I’m healthy as can be. Yes I’ve been struggling with weight all my life but I’m not obese. And it was not the issue at hand. How dare he tell me that. Would not recommend his opinion or him to anyone. Disgusting.
